Experimental investigation of the link between boom oscillations and evenness of spraying

Experimental investigation of the link between boom oscillations and evenness of spraying

Trudy Latviiskoi Sel' skokhozyaistvennoi Akademii (250): 97-104

Experiments were carried out to measure sprayer boom oscillation on a variety of terrain, including grassland, arable land, and artificial track with a simulated uneven surface. A definite link was established between oscillation and evenness of distribution on the basis of relationships between acceleration, rate of boom vibration and liquid distribution. It was found that there was a closer link between distribuiton and rate of vibration than between distribution and acceleration.
